    That would be awesome Gammy!

    I spend over an hour earlier this week looking for a vid like that, I thought there would be one already seeing how popular it is.

    I'm trying to advise a friend which vape to get after she stopped smoking for a few weeks now and ended up showing here Fred's vid with his enormous flame-thrower and a 300$ waterpipe. I tell you that scares a noob away quickly :lol:

    I could make one with a pen torch and a 100ml EHLE? :lol:

    Haha, that might help a bit, but I'm not sure if it'd be enough in this particular case. She's probably better of with something user friendly like a Solo anyway, I'm not sure if I trust her with even the smallest torch after her response to your vid :uhoh:

    I am thankful I could at least find a video that showed how it works though, it's really hard to explain some of this stuff to people who never used anything like this before I noticed :tup:

    I'll make it Sunday night. I'll present both the Slider (Classic) and the Cone (Gong). :brow:

    Still lovin my gnomes! :)

    the wpa+cone is really great for quick one hitters, a pinch of a bud, 25 seconds heat up time and i get one hit of really thick, fantastic tasting vapor.

    at first it was a bit difficult to get the temp right with the torch, the hits were either too thin or too hot/harsh - then i started to watch the clock when heating the cone and all problems were solved: just had to find the sweet spot :D

    i'm really wondering what i would need the cloud for - if i want extra thick clean vapor i take the gnome, for thick vapor i got the vhw and with the still thick but long stretched out sessions the herbo is my daily vape...

    yet - i still wonder what the cloud hits like lol damn you FC :p

    I think of my Cloud as an electric gn0me. You know how you had to figure out your "sweet spot" for heating your gn0me? Well imagine if you had a gn0me that was always pre-heated to your preferred sweet spot so you could just walk up and hit it without having to grab your torch..... Now also imagine that this same "electronic gn0me" did not ever cool down during a hit - no matter how hard or long you hit it for. :rockon:

    :peace:

    hehe ok - that does sound like something i could find a place for :D

    fortunately i still have time to really think about whether or not to get the cloud... i'm in europe and around here it won't available until 2013...

    until then i can wonder which portable to get, lots of interesting new options... and while my iolite and i had some really good times together i definately can see our ways parting in the near future ;)

    oh yeah and just to not be off topic i think i'll load another wpa :D

    hmm that destroyer really is some fine herb, intense lemon-thai smell with rotten background.

    so here's to your health

    I had a very pleasant email correspondence with Calen last Saturday and ended up ordering a Slider Gnome and a custom mouthpiece for my bubbler. I was very surprised to find an invoice with the message that he had already finished my order today! I thought it'd take a week or two :lol:

    I'll come show 'm off as soon as they make it across the pond.

    :) no prob

    I kinda screwed up the intake part though, you can't really see me do the hit..

    It's not easy being actor and director!

    I did another vid with the Cone + WPA, I just have to edit some parts before I post it.

    were you rolling the bud up to the heated area?

    I think his main design is the spiral, yes. However nice they look in pictures, just know that they are 10 times as beautiful up close ;)

    Actually that was a mistake due to making the video. Always tilt the gn0me upwards so that your herb doesn't touch the heated area, or you might combust.

    Good question, and indeed better answered by Calen or other glassblowers...

    My Gn0mes are out for delivery today and I could not be more excited! Will definitely be posting some pics and vids in like 5 hours when it officially arrives! Thanks to everyone and FC that I could even find a diamond in the ruff like this and special thanks to Gammy and everyone who has posted vids of their gn0mes that helped me out with my decisions a lot!

    Im sure you will love it. Once you get the hang of how much to heat it for optimal hits, youll be hooked ;)

    okay so i got my gn0mes and i havent really had a chance to test them out yet but i looked them over and i was wondering has anyone tried throwing glass screens (the ones that look like jax) and then put finer grind in their gn0mes? food for thought might try it out later and will post some pics

    I experimented with grinding, but didnt try a glass screen. It seems to work best with small pieces broken up my hand

    I use a small metal screen-turned-into-a-basket for finer grinds (with the gn0me classic), works perfectly. ;)

    Speaking of the classic, I had a good session yesterday with it and after using the Cone excusively for a good while, what struck me with the Classic is the incredible taste you get from the first draw. It has no equal imo. I think it's due to the narrowness of the classic mouthpiece cooling the air more rapidly than the Cone, thus enhancing the taste.
